WIP monolith
« on: April 15, 2014, 01:06:46 AM »
Slowly working on my monolith for an upcoming painting contest and am looking for any feedback as I go. The first picture is of the front wall with the weathered metal and rust effects. Just wondering what you guys think of it so far.

Well done sir. The weathering looks fantastic. And I really like that glowing effect in between the panels as you're showing with the green good job keep up the good work. Looking forward to seeing the finished product, and I hope you do well in the contest.

Thanks everyone! Once I get more
Of it finished I will post some more pictures. To add some more rusting effect I decided to add another 4 washes in the corners to give it the orange rust tint.

So I'm in a bit of a dilemma right now and would appreciate you guys input... Looking at the monolith wall I've already painted do you think I should use a glaze to tone down the green highlights? also do you think I should use ardcoat on the wall tiles to make them
Shine?
Any input is greatly appreciated
Thanks,
TheOverlord
